Today is the first year anniversary of Upper Perk Valley’s own coffeehouse, Java Good Day Cafe, which showcases local artists (painters, photographers, knitters, mixed media, ukelele players, folk and blues band, and more), along with serving a rotating menu of homemade soups, scrumptious cupcakes and biscotti, and of course chai, cappuccino, and other coffee house favorites. JGDC is celebrating all day with specials, a new art opening beginning at 6 p.m., and open mic/karaoke tonight, September 6th, from 7 pm – 11 pm (rumor has it Ariel Royer and friends might stop by for an encore performance after last week’s Peregrine concert which played to a packed room). Jessi Lee Ross will be performing Saturday night, September 7th. Jessi has played at the cafe before, including as part of Make Music Upper Perk this past summer.
Main Street in East Greenville and Pennsburg will be open to foot traffic only from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. for Community Day on Saturday, June 6th. It’s a great opportunity to see people, catch up with local volunteer organizations, crafters, and businesses, pick up a FAME bookmark listing all school concerts for 2013-2014, check out the grand opening of the Upper Perk Community Life Center where the stage is open to musicians throughout the day, hear this year’s Upper Perk Marching Band, the Red Hill Band, watch a magic show, and maybe discover something new about the area and the people who live here.
Enjoy an free open air Celtic concert at Green Lane Park amphitheater beginning at 5 pm on Saturday, September 7th. Tree! performs traditional Celtic, Celtic Rock, and bluegrass. Bring a lawn chair or blanket (and maybe have a picnic as well).
